My North Carolina buyer had accepted a job as a Clerk Repoter in Lewisburg, WV.  When I met Ms. Buyer she first thought she would buy a house. We looked, but to no avail as she had dogs, cats, rabbits and birds. Oh yes and a daughter. She decided to rent a place and yes she did find a landlord who would rent to her and her daughter as well as all her pets. Since we couldn't find the right home for all of them, Ms. Buyer decided to buy land and build.  We found 2.40 acres on Arbuckle Lane only 2 miles from the courthouse where she worked. Sold price was $37,000.   This property offers a country setting while only being a few miles from everything great about Lewisburg! Beautiful pastoral and mountain views with some amazing sunsets! Located one mile from RT 219 on Arbuckle Lane Road.    ...

I lived and worked in the Washington DC Metropolitan area for 35 years. I lived mostly in the Northern Virginia area..... Alexandria, Arlington, McLean, and Annandale Virginia.  When I had decided to retire, my husband suggested we move back to our roots... West Virginia.  I am absolutely so happy living here in Lewisburg, West Virginia. Yes it is small compared to Northern Virginia. The population is about 4400. We don't have the large malls, department stores, large specialty food stores like Macy's, Trader Joe's, etc.  The really nice thing about going to the local stores, shopping or going to the office is that it is only a 3-5 minute drive. Love it!   This weekend was Lewisburg's Holiday Festival.  On Saturday, the kids enjoyed Breakfast With Santa, a benefit for Court Appointed Sp...
